I miss Google Maps. The laggy pile of trash they have now makes me go to Bing when I want to map things out now.

Every adult in a first world country who isn't living off grid is tracked. Your profile is meticulously maintained and sold off to whoever wants it.

Longer extensions are perfectly usable and silly anachronisms like
The Gmail app supports POP and IMAP accounts now. Just use that and evict the Yahoo app.
All the conic-section fuels are unstable.
Except for the circle of course.
The PBS snake oil salesmen that come out during the periodic beg-athons manage to lie while spewing out facts as half-truths that don't support their entire argument. A machine is unlikely to be able to distinguish these sort of lies never mind the hordes of gullible people that fall for them.
